Living in the Even Though

So many healers try to convince people to create their own reality by ignoring negative thoughts or emotions or people. And that sounds cool.

But here’s the catch: most people I know can’t do that. Most people I know live in a world where their families have crises, their jobs are very demanding, they have health challenges, and the society around them needs huge changes. I see those people turn to healers online or in person and then end up feeling:

  • judged
  • less than
  • left behind
  • like they are failing themselves
  • like they are failing God
  • and somehow, they are failing their life.

And then…

They come to me, disillusioned and doubting themselves and their connection to God and their own intuition.

Please don’t believe those myths about yourself. You are not failing just because you are facing major challenges and are unable to pretend that you’re not, or unwilling to pretend that you or your loved ones don’t hurt, or that you don’t have questions and doubts.

Don’t believe those myths…

Please don’t believe those myths about yourself. You are not failing just because you are facing major challenges and are unable to pretend that you’re not, or unwilling to pretend that you or your loved ones don’t hurt, or that you don’t have questions and doubts.

You are not less connected or intuitive than your healer. You are not crazy because you think our world needs healing and change. You are just being authentic and trying to figure out what the heck to do. 

Live in the Even Though…

That’s what you need to do if you are unable or unwilling to positive-think your way out of reality.

You don’t want to live in a fantasy world but you also don’t want to live in the bottomless pit of your problems. So live in the Even Though. (I think this is what the positive-thinking healers are trying to say, actually. Their message just gets a bit lost in the hype sometimes.)

This isn’t pretending you can create a world where problems don’t exist; where your body never needs medication; where your family never fights; and society never feels like it’s slowly sucking the life out of you. This is seeing all of that, bravely admitting it and looking it square in the eye.

Say “Even Though…”

  • Even Though your life feels impossible sometimes, you have resilience and support. You may have to ask for it, but it is there. You are supported by the Universe and by your loved ones. 
  • Even Though you may have an illness, you know you deserve health and can have it again. The bravest, wisest, most admirable people I know are people who have faced acute or chronic illness and learned to have joy and gratitude anyway. They live in the Even Though. 
  • Even Though your loved ones are suffering, you have hope and bottomless love. They are your heart and you don’t want them to suffer, and it’s not fair. And no one said it would be. (Or maybe someone did say that, but they were pretty wrong.) Even Though your loved ones are suffering, your love makes a difference. It could make THE difference. Maybe they’re not good at letting you know that. But I’m letting you know right now. 
  • Even Though our society feels splintered and damaged, you can be part of the change the world needs. Maybe for your family, your town, or maybe bigger. You changing your corner of the world changes the world itself.

Welcome to the Even Though…

  • Where Even Though things are hard, you don’t have to pretend anymore because you are brave enough to see the truth. 
  • Where Even Though you feel alone sometimes, you understand your own connection to the power and joy of the Universe.
  • Where Even Though there is illness and chaos, you accept your body, your family, your world, and you still have the hope to change it. 
  • Where Even Though your life isn’t perfect, you are enough because you remember your own connection, you finally have love and respect for yourself, and at last you see and step up to play your irreplaceable part in the world.

I live in the Even Though, and it’s really cool here! Come on in!
